Huzzah! I have 25+ points of Cryx now! And I have no idea how I want to paint em >.> I did NOT get any Legion, they did not have Abby, and thats the only caster I wanted. Which is good, cause after talking to a few people that I chat with around here, I am gonna go back and pick up Trolls for my horde faction.
Here is what I have for my Cryx:
Cankerworm (more about THIS later)
Not buying any more Cryx for a while. Now I must PAINT my dudes… but I have no idea what Scheme to go with.
Any suggestions? I just don’t want to do black. I don’t like it.
So, lets talk about my Cankerworm fiasco… I buy myself a Mk2 blister of Cankerworm, and when I get home and take it out to assemble it…I have 2 front halves, but no back half! So looks like I gotta contact Privateer Press to get a back half so I can actually BUILD Cankerworm >.> BAH.
So lets talk about the 2 games I have played thus far:
First was straight Cryx vs Circle battlebox on Jan 28th. And it was a SLUGFEST. I don’t remember much but I made some mistakes. Like throwing my arc nodes into melee haha. It ended up however being pDenny vs pKaya and an Argus. And he charged pKaya in (no feat, he used it to have pKaya TRASH my Slayer) and critted and hit pDenny on a boosted hit, and ate me.
Second game was a 25 point game and happened on Feb 4th. I took the following:
– 2x Deathripper
Min Bloodgorgers (6)
And Dan (my primary opponent) took the following:
– Gnarlhorn Saytr
– Warpwolf Stalker
Now I made ALOT of mistakes here. I mean SO MANY.
FIRST: Didn’t notice Cankerworm was Advance Deploy
SECOND: Deployed my Slayer RIGHT BEHIND A THICK FOREST
THIRD: Did not cast a SINGLE UPKEEP on the first round (and I went FIRST)
Those are just on the deployment / first turn >.> Furthermore, my dice were against me in all sorts of ways.
Things went downhill from there, and Dan is learning how to be much more aggressive. On Dans second turn he moved Kromac up, cast Bestial, and then used his Stones activation to teleport Kromac up further which put me in range of Bestial…turning OFF EVERYTHING. Forcing me to back up. He also was upkeeping Warpath (And with that many beasts, all sorts of sillyness happened)
The Stalker is what got me eventually after I tried to get my last arc node out of melee with his Argus. I had 3 focus camped, and his Stalker came out of the forest right into Gaspy, and it took ALL of its fury to kill me. Dan was rolling crazy high ALL NIGHT.
Both games, 15 and 25, took 3 hours to complete.
I felt that I needed more control. So, I picked up a Reaper. This is how I am thinking I am gonna run at 25 points:
– 2x Deathripper
Cankerworm didn’t really feel useful at that level, and it did NOTHING for me (maybe I have no idea what to do with it).
I think the Reaper will help with some pulling targets in to be murdered. Not sure yet!
Finally, I have been considering, sometime down the line in the future, of trying to become a Press Ganger. There is a reason of course. The store I play at, Phoenix Games, sadly barely gets any support from our current Orlando Press Ganger. And I can see the reason, honestly. The current ganger lives about 45 minutes away from Phoenix and there are 3 stores over on that side of town that he frequents. So Phoenix Games has to do everything on its own.
And I am nearest to Phoenix.
Now, I am wondering something (since I wouldn’t be doing this anytime soon). I know I need 2 battleboxes painted up and from the same game to be able to apply. Would the Gorten (Rhulic) Battlebox count for that? Or would the second box have to be from one of the 4 main factions?
SO there are my 2 questions of the day!
Could the Rhulic Battlebox qualify as a second Battlebox for Ganger Status?
What paint scheme (basic one please) should I use for my Cryx?
